Introduction to the Agile Mindset – EY Academy of Business

Introduction to the Agile Mindset

Agile is the hot topic across companies from small video game studios to the largest financial institutions, because it helps them to serve their customers better, quicker and with all the added benefit of more loyal and motivated empoyees. But while everyone sees it as a „silver bullet” to solve all of their problems, the effort to use it usually stops at „run daily standup meetings”, „use kanban boards” and the like, without the real understanding of what makes an organization agile – building a mindset that spans across all layers of an organization to get the most out of the creative force of their employees.

Whether we plan to make the transition to agile for our organization or just want to understand our clients who use it, the first step is to get a good grip of the mindset itself. This one-day workshop focuses on that, providing participants with the ability to make decisions about projects – whether they are suited to be run in an agile way or not, to see what changes are needed in the organization to harness the power of agile, and to guide them taking the first steps towards a transition to a fully agile approach.

Best suited for:

  • business decision makers
  • functional managers
  • project managers
  • business analysts
  • The predictive-adaptive scale and usability of the methods
  • The agile mindset and the preconditions to introduce it
  • Content management, rituals and artifacts in agile
  • Organizational implications and a case study of a transition
